It was the end of year party for Jivan’s Kindergarten class. I expected to watch the kids put on a show for the parents but let me tell you, I did not expect to be teary eyed all the way through the show! And it was not only me…

You see, Jivan and his classmates (who are now his friends) have had fabulous teachers this year. Two great teachers who have been supportive throughout the year, through thick and thin, and we have had our fair share of thick with Jivan (all settled now though, phew!). Anyway, one of the teachers had prepared a slideshow of the year and it was just fabulous, and to top it off they gave us each a copy of it (so we can watch it and get teary eyed again).

Throughout the show the parents adoringly watched and took pictures…

While the kids put on a brilliant and creative show. One of the songs was a version on New York, New York – “start spreading the news” they sang, “we’re leaving today, we want to be a part of it, first grade, second grade”…

Writing about this now makes me teary eyed and I am so thankful that my child has had a wonderful experience of school through this year’s introduction, thanks to his wonderful teachers and school principal. My grandmother must have been happy looking on from wherever she is now, having been a kindergarten teacher herself for nearly 40 years and a brilliant one at that. I love you Dadig!

One Response to Graduation

    Such a sweet moment made even sweeter by dedicated, caring teachers. We had a similar experience last year when my boy graduated from KG. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house though the dads tried valiantly to maintain composure. Great post Tamar!
